The de Corato family has firm roots in the land of Puglia. Here, in the countryside of Andria, at the end of the 1940s Sebastiano de Corato founded the Rivera winery in the family estate of the same name with the precise intention of valorising and spreading throughout the world the enormous qualitative potential of viticulture in the area surrounding the Castel of Mt.

Success was not long in coming and Rivera soon became the main point of reference for Apulian oenology and the authentic driving force of its rebirth, thanks also to the innovations in the vineyard and cellar made starting from the 1980s. With the entry into the company of Sebastiano and Marco, Carlo's sons and grandsons of the founder, Rivera continues with pride and renewed commitment to the production of wines that express all the intense and elegant character of this territory and its vines.

In application of the company philosophy, in all phases of the production process - cultivation of the vineyards, harvesting of the grapes, vinification, refinement and bottling of the wines - the most modern viticulture and oenology techniques are combined with absolute respect for natural processes, with a view to environmental and economic sustainability and continuous quality improvement.
